I would not claim that David in Prometheus is gay – we have no enough pieces of information concerning this question. But it is easy to see that he provides the gayest atmosphere in the movie.
This feature of the character is not a problem (for me) at all, but in the light of the new insight revealed by Scott regarding the question ”who David really is”, we can jump to the conclusion that David may have been Peter Weyland’s lover.
I had the intention to focus on a theoretical gay relationship between Weyland and David, and I think the possibility is the most important factor of this idea. I have never watched Prometheus with 'gay thoughts' in my mind - wow, that's a strange sentence - but Scott's new comment regarding the first minutes of Alien: Covenant pushed the limits in my view. Scott hints that the beginning of the movie (with more info about the relationship between Weyland and David) will be shocking.
As you know, Blade Runner (directed by Scott) reveals a scene where Tyrell (the creator) and Roy (the created replicant) have a kiss.
This is not a gay kiss - or at least it is much more than a gay kiss. It is a kiss between creator and creation. It is an act of becoming one. Can it be an act of a covenant?
Tyrell and the replicant/Weyland and the android... Creators and creations.
Blade Runner shows a kiss before the death of the creator.
Will Alien: Covenant show a kiss after the birth of the creation?
Is it possible that we should be prepared for something similar at the beginning of Alien: Covenant?
Yes, David does act girl-like, perhaps he is weyland's lover ;)
Obsession is a Power, not a Curse ;)
A tad bit presumptuous. I assume you have zero gay friends based on this ridiculous post.
I believe Predators gave Weyland the technology to create a robot lover the likes of which mankind had never before seen
Ati GET OUT OF HERE!
*distant screams of furious fury of sheer fury is heard*
Ati THE READING'S OFF THE CHARTS, GET AWAY!!!
Don't listen to these haters, you can post whatever opinion you want its what this site is for :)
Obsession is a Power, not a Curse ;)
*tiny dildomorphs crawl past feet*
Ok maybe it wasn't so bad *phew*
*Is slammed by a massive ******* and then ******!!! When a ****** **** ********* until the whole **** is ********!!!!*
Even if this thread is approached seriously, a character twist like this would be irrelevant and pointless for the overall narrative, IMHO
Perhaps Weyland himself was gay and that's why he made robot children? David and (possibly) Meredith.
Just sayin' :P
ps I see Elizabeth Shaw reflected in David's left eye in the fourth pic down from the top! LOL
Where's Inquisitor Fifield to punish me?
This actually made me LOL, thank you. But per the OP, a robot can not have a sexual orientation. Remember, he understands human emotions, although he can not feel them himself. I think it's safe to say Weyland and David were not shacking up together. LOL
*Tiny Dildomorphs* Hahahah Love it!!!
Thanks to you Ati, (and Neo) I have found my favourite Morp!
Thank you for your answers.
Movie fan, thank you for your support.
I think the whole question is very interesting. The post is not about gay people and gay rights. I intended to focus on the possibility of a gay relationship between Weyland and David, and I think the possibility is the most important factor of this issue. I have never watched Prometheus with 'gay thoughts' in my mind - wow, that's a strange sentence - but Scott's new comment regarding the first minutes of Alien: Covenant pushed the limits in my view. Scott hints that the beginning of the movie (with more info about the relationship between Weyland and David) will be shocking.
Irrelevant and pointless?
As you know, Blade Runner (directed by Scott), reveals a scene where Tyrell (the creator) and the (created) replicant 'hero' have a kiss.
This is not a gay kiss - or at least it is much more than a gay kiss. It is a kiss between creator and creation. It is an act of becoming one. It is an act of a covenant?
Tyrell - replicant and Weyland - android... Creators and creations. Irrelevant?
Blade Runner: a kiss before death (of the creator)...
Alien: Covenant: a kiss after birth (of the creation)...?
I think we should prepare for something similar...
As a gay guy I can honestly say that I think he is gayer then tom cruise getting double teamed by a rainbow colored dolphin. He might have been programmed to be that way unlike humans who are born gay. Although I think androids are sexually ambiguous. They could go either way based on their motives. I don't think weyland was gay. David (Fassbender) is another story though. He does know how to make a great martini and colors his roots like a champ. He could totally come hang out with me whenever he wants. But he has to wear that skin tight space suit lol.
@Chad - hahah that was hilarious....rainbow colored dolphin...That made me laugh.
I just think he's a robot. But if it's true that he assimilates the personality of those around him, maybe hes been hanging out with teenage girls
David's 'mannerisms' were influenced by the films he watched.
Thus, Posh-Lawrence-British accent, plus his butler status, combined with his robotic movements made him effectual.
Soooooo the question is ...Is David gayer than Adam Lambert pissing on a Cher impersonator in drag at an Elton John concert while being showered with glitter??
He has been hanging out with chicks. I mean he stalks Shaw in her dreams probably more than they showed
David version 8.1
So does David get turned "on" when Waldo I mean Walter makes out with a facehugger?
"Let me be the first to say: WTF?"
Let me be the second: WTF?
I think this forum may have achieved Peak Asinine (TM).
Well the MORB is somewhat of a dickhead.
Well, the xenos eat a ton of viagra for breakfast (hence their rather "phallic" -shaped head)
Dangerous dickheads indeed....
No wonder the Colonial Marines have to cock their guns and shoot from a distance to avoid acid squirting on their armor.
They've gotta stay hard and look stiff to handle an enemy that could take them from behind.
An enemy that likes to thrust its erected tail right into humans, and even androids who tend to pump out all that juicy white bodily fluids all over the place.
I am thoroughly overwhelmed by this topic. I will now avert my eyes and depart.
